Three blind mice

Three blind mice. Three blind mice.See how they run. See how they run.They all ran after the farmer’s wife,Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,Did you ever see such a sight in your life,As three blind mice?


Well well, I have  a ton of English nursery rhymes in my head.  Why of course, after the bell rang at school, and after we’d all stood to attention and walked single file to class, and after the bell rang again for lunch time, the playground would erupt into this British chorus of ancient rhymes like the one above which is over 400 years old.  How language travels…  Don’t even ask why this song popped into my head when I saw this picture.

    What a beautiful rhyme. It’s of my favorite lyrical genres, I should say. So linear, without unnecessary epithets. So sharp, so mercilessly true.
    And another thing to say. I really like the freedom you take in your writing. It’s great to see that freedom in a text (especially in a short one, such as a post in a blog), although I can hardly explain so far where and how exactly it comes across.

    You are Divine ! Shala, I appreciate not only your style but your commitment to being true to you and your ability to take your culture, placing it in your womb, and taking it where ever you go.
